seo: Google Buys Feedburner for discounted $100 million - 06/02/07 03:59 AM
Yes its true if you don't have a blogger.com blog yet Google will probably control your blog in some form or fasion soon enough :-(  Their shopping cart is only increasing in size as their stock breaks $500 per share once more.
"Unlike the rumor that FeedBurner is nearly code-complete on a multiplayer Wii edition, the blog posts, phone calls and conjecture about our future as part of the Google family tree are now officially true.
FeedBurner has been acquired by Google. The local weather forecast calls for general euphoria with intermittent periods of off-the-rails delight."

seo: Blog Article Titles - Why worry about it? - SEO 101 Part I - 05/07/07 01:26 AM
The title tag is very important. Why? Because search engines not only give it value in relation to optimization, SE's use it in their search results. Search on ANY search engine, and you'll see the content of this tag used in the anchor text of the links for each web site. Here is a little experiment. Follow the Google link (opens in a new window) and take a look. Google Experiment - Source

seo: SEM and Advertising 101 - Banner Ads -Vs- PPC - 04/17/07 06:22 PM
Banner ads are in the SEM (Search Engine Marketing) world generally a waste of money...  At least if you are on a budget.  If you have several thousand to spend per month for branding then go for it.  Banners would be great for getting your name out there and letting people see your face and name.
 The general click through rates on text ads (PPC) are generally higher than banner ads.  Due to the great old fact of over exposure.  People SEE THOUSANDS of ads every day, so text ads don't come of as offensive or just junk to the sub-conscience.
